Im confused with declaring "Alloy wheels" to insurance companies

does the wheels on this car count as alloy wheels and therefore have to declare it to the insurance company?
every car i look at has wheels like this and when i do put alloy wheels on insurance it goes up to like £5k lol..?

They mean after market alloy wheels. Those are factory fit so you do not need to declare them.

Might sound like a stupid question but how do i know if its factory fit or if the previous owner has done after market alloy wheels.

Factory ones will have the car brand on them.

You can kinda tell by looking at them. If they look nice then they're usually factory ones (or very expensive after market ones, but then you'd know about them). If they look a bit **** then they're more than likely aftermarket.

Post a quick picture of them and we can tell you if they are or not.
